Ship Facts: Carnival Triumph Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Triumph Deck Plans
Great Family Cruise

Our fifth cruise and fourth with Carnival. We survived the Splendor Engine room fire off the coast of California four years ago, and were concerned because of the Triumph fire last year. Starting at this fear of failure, all turned out very well for our group of 9. Our friends 3 kids are picky eaters, and they all found the food great, especially the sitdown Paris and London restaurants. Daily new menus were the best cruise meals we had ever experienced.

Kids enjoyed the pool, basketball and mini golf, but as there was 5 kids they did little kids club, but they find kids clubs are better than any all inclusive kids programs. Excellent leaders.

The weight room and yoga class was best of any ship we had been on previously, the boot camp was high priced, so as a result was not done.

Captains dinner did not have the Captain present, and we never ran into him at any other functions, perhaps he was with his mistress?. We know running the ship is important, but a bit of customer service goes a long way. The rest of the staff were all very customer focused, and we did not have any reservations on leaving the standard tip.

The balcony rooms were adequate for 4 & 5 people, with roomy balconies. The hairdryer was a 1980's style, and shower control was hard to adjust without scalding. TV was also an old style 21" tube, that did function OK

The entertainment was best ever, with April and the Showband blowing us away many times, with their dynamic singer and smoking brass. I have seen a number of Showbands on the mainland, these guys were the best. Hope to see more of this on future Carnival cruises. We also enjoyed the VIP party for Gold and Platinum members, with great complementary food and drinks.
